Heidi Kramer

Congratulations to Director of Development, Heidi Kramer at the UW Foundation and Alumni Association who works on behalf of the School of Veterinary Medicine. Heidi was instrumental in the commercial featuring the golden retriever Scout that aired during the Super Bowl, raising much needed funds to support clinical cancer research and helping increase awareness of the important role veterinary medicine plays in the fight against cancer.



Ash Collins

Ash Collins helped Dane County Humane Society go viral! When a cat came in as a stray and needed her ear flaps amputated, Ash crocheted her a new set of ears! Read her full story in this CNN article - https://www.cnn.com/2020/01/19/us/cat-crochet-ears-adoption-trnd/index.html

Ruth Hansen

In February, Ruth Hansen presented "Community in Fundraising Practice: Meanings, Mechanisms, and Metaphors" as part of the colloquium series at the Helen Bader Institute - UW-Milwaukee. The presentation was based on analysis of how the idea of "community" surfaced in interviews with fifteen fundraisers -- who it includes, and what benefits and obligations it brings with it.

Pete Schweiger and Anna January and Co. for getting the AFP mentorship program set up and ready to roll!
